Leeds: Paddy Kenny reacts to Rasmus Kristensen update

Leeds: Paddy Kenny reacts to Rasmus Kristensen update -Leeds United News

Former Leeds United goalkeeper Paddy Kenny has been reacting to the club’s proposed move for RB Salzburg right-back Rasmus Kristensen, Football Insider report.

The Lowdown: Kristensen close

The Whites have already brought Brenden Aaronson to Elland Road from the Austrian giants and have now held more talks over a move for Kristensen.

Transfer expert Fabrizio Romano revealed on Thursday morning that the 24-year-old is ‘expected to join Leeds in the coming days’.

Kristensen is due to undergo medical tests after international duty with Denmark and then a full agreement is set to be reached.

The Latest: Kenny’s comments

Kenny, formerly of Leeds, was talking to FI regarding the club’s next summer swoop.

He said that Kristensen ‘sounds like a quality player’ and praised Leeds for not hanging around.

“I have touched on this with Leeds plenty of times.

“By not signing anyone in January they put themselves in a position they should not have been in.

“The squad was so thin and it nearly cost them their Premier League status.

“It makes sense for the squad to be made bigger and to have people fighting for positions.

“That means they actually have replacements when there are injuries and suspensions.

“It’s another early signing as well so they aren’t waiting around which is what you want to see from Leeds now.

“He sounds like a quality player so I’m looking forward to seeing him play.”

The Verdict: Good start

Aaronson has become the club’s first permanent senior midfield signing since 2018 and Kristensen looks set to take over from the injured Luke Ayling and Stuart Dallas at right-back.
